1. Tiger

1902 1914 1926 1938 1950 1962 1974 1986 1998 2010 2022

August can be expected to be a competitive month for you, particularly where your career is concerned. If you’re not careful, monetary loss could be in store for you as well. If you’re travelling, be extra mindful of your belongings and personal safety. To be involved in accidents means you have to cough up some extra money so avoiding trouble from the get-go is the best.

2. Rabbit

1903 1915 1927 1939 1951 1963 1975 1987 1999 2011

It’s not recommended for you to do any travelling this month. You can always have it planned for another time. For Rabbits, another thing you should take note of is your interaction with the opposite gender. Try not to get too close too fast with people this month as there’s a high likelihood for you to be involved in drama.

3. Dragon

1904 1916 1928 1940 1952 1964 1976 1988 2000 2012

The workload in the office is expected to increase this month so be mentally prepared for that. It could be that there will be a shift of responsibility or you might take on another team member’s duty. All this pressure could easily affect your emotions and temperament. If left unchecked, it could lead to unwarranted arguments. Therefore, from time to time, do remember to take things easy.

4. Snake

1905 1917 1929 1941 1953 1965 1977 1989 2001 2013

A profitable month can be expected if you have overseas investments. When your finances are taken care of, it’s natural that you’ll have some peace of mind. When that happens, everything will flow smoothly and you’ll be able to increase your productivity. This is your chance to kickstart the third quarter of the year and hopefully be able to finish it strong.

5. Horse

1906 1918 1930 1942 1954 1966 1978 1990 2002 2014

Where your career is concerned, you’re currently at the right place at the right time. Efforts will be rewarded and recognised, productivity will increase, and profits and gains are yours for the taking. The more you give, the more you will earn. If anything, August is the best time for you to maximise your efforts so do your best this month.

6. Goat

1907 1919 1931 1943 1955 1967 1979 1991 2003 2015

Now would be a good time for you to pick up a new skill or invest in some self-education. The month’s energy will assist you in academic pursuits so it’s highly recommended you initiate something along that line. If you happen to be taking any sort of examination this month, great results can be expected if you had made an effort in your studies.

7. Monkey

1908 1920 1932 1944 1956 1968 1980 1992 2004 2016

The month of August will be a whole lot more challenging for those born under this animal sign. But when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. It might seem uncomfortable at first but you’ll adjust accordingly eventually. If you need to, you can always ask for help as they will be readily available in the form of seniors and colleagues.

8. Rooster

1909 1921 1933 1945 1957 1969 1981 1993 2005 2017

You may have to face an uphill battle in this coming month and it may result in some dent in your wallet. However, it’s not the end of the world. Just be careful where money is concerned and be extra mindful to safeguard yourself against scams and similar shady dealings. If you’re able to watch your steps, these sorts of things can be avoided.

9. Dog

1910 1922 1934 1946 1958 1970 1982 1994 2006 2018

Things may take a downward turn around this time of the year for you. If you have people working under you, be vigilant for any backstabbing or betrayal. Try to work more independently and minimise the need to have others involved. As there may be plenty of conflicts this month where people are concerned, it’s best to work on yourself rather than getting into unnecessary arguments.

10. Pig

1911 1923 1935 1947 1959 1971 1983 1995 2007 2019

There’s a high likelihood that you might be involved in physical injury this month so try to avoid any rough activities. While safety measures such as rules and regulations can be practised and observed to keep the risk minimal, it’s best to simply skip it entirely for the time being. For now, try to find other sources of enjoyment that don’t involve high-risk sports.

11. Rat

1912 1924 1936 1948 1960 1972 1984 1996 2008 2020

For Rats, August is the month for you to socialise. Now’s the time to expand your network, meet new people and build new connections. While your luck with creating new opportunity increases, you might be faced with arguments with your loved ones. Therefore, try to strike a healthy balance between these two different aspects of your life to optimise your opportunities.

12. Ox

1913 1925 1937 1949 1961 1973 1985 1997 2009 2021

Where money and career are concerned, things up looking up for you this month. It’s looking to be that your hard work will be rewarded soon enough. That being said, there might be some discord appearing in the office between you and your colleagues. Try to minimise your interactions with them for the time being. For business owners, it could be that you’ll have to deal with disgruntled workers this month.
